30-Day Book Challenge: Day 12 – Book You Loved Yet Hated

Day 12: A book you love but hate at the same time.

Written in the StarsAnother one that popped immediately into my mind, it’s going to have to be Written in the Stars by Aisha Saeed, which is an #OwnVoices Pakistani young adult literature novel about a girl who is brutally forced into an arranged marriage by her parents, which includes her being drugged and raped. The message within the pages of this book, and the spotlight it shines on an extremely harmful yet very real part of South Asian culture, is so vital and so bloody important. I loved it for how brave it was to be upfront about this issue. Yet, the writing was so flat and amateurish, requiring loads more editing, and the “epic” romance in the book was one-dimensional, forced, and unbelievable due to the inherent lack of chemistry between the two individuals, and the bad writing drove me baddy.


Thank you so much for visiting me today. Until next time, keep reading and keep otakuing. 💜

  1. Hmm for me I think it might be Moby Dick, Epic tale of how obsession can destroy you if you can’t control it, on the other hand several chapters detailing in depth whaling and shipping techniques.
